  I remember a long time ago there was an Online Radiogram PDF site.

Anyone know if that's still around?

  Currently stringing up some wire in hopes of hearing and talking to you guys. I am in Lincolnton NC and an old buddy of your N8CJS

  I've been unable to get on the net the past few months, because my multiband Inverted L for 160-10 meters doesn't like 75/80 meters for some reason. I recently bought an MFJ-17758 80/40 meter trapped dipole with a 1:1 current Balun. I tested it today and it is working great on 80 meters. I can't wait to check in again, I've missed talking to everyone, because everyone on the OSSBN are great people.

  Hi Tom,

I live in a small village with a lot of trees. It's very pretty but it also makes it very hard to put up an antenna without being in the middle of one.

I use a small folded dipole up around 35 feet. I created a wooden center pole from several 4x4's and strung the ends between the trees. It works, but could be better if I didn't have the trees to deal with.

I have a Yaesu 920 with an Ameritron AL-811 amplifier. I run around 400 watts and don't seem to have any problems with being heard. I use less power on the days that there are no leaves on the trees or when it is very dry outside. But I do like that I have the power to cut through it all when the leaves are heavy with dew or rain.

  Hi Tom, I am the OSSBN net mnrg and I will tell you what works best for me. I live in a 50' by 100' lot in town and I have managed to put up a 75mtr center fed,with a 1:1 balun,diapole at 40 feet. I am using a Drake TR-7 with a 250 watt input. A 100 watt rig would be just fine if the antenna is up about 40' at the center. The ends can slope down into an inverted vee if necessary. A vertical antenna is not good for traffic handling inside the state but works great for long range. hopr this helps.

  I am wondering what type antenna and power level works best for your most active members. I have tried to check in a few times,but am not heard well or not at all. Unfortunately, I live on a small city lot and don't have many options for an antenna. Tnx Tom
